Kenneth Anger in person!

For Halloween, we present an evening of films from the avant-garde that explore the space between film and the supernatural.  The program includes Georges Melies’ The Kingdom of the Fairies (1903), Ferdinand Zeca’s El Espectro Rojo (1903), Hans Richter’s Ghosts Before Breakfast (1928); and James Sibley Watson and Melville Webber’s Fall of the House of Usher (1928).  The evening concludes with three films by Kenneth Anger: Scorpio Rising (1963), Lucifer Rising (1980); and the Midwest premiere of Anger’s first film in 22 years, The Man We Want to Hang (2002), a tribute to occultist Aleister Crowley.
